Abstract: The prime objective of this study was to evaluate differences between the swimming performance of two distinct life stages of European eels. The critical swimming speed (Ucrit) of 29 yellow- and 33 silver-phase eels was evaluated in a swim tunnel. Silver-phase eels showed a better swimming performance (Ucrit = 0.66 ms/1) than yellow individuals (Ucrit = 0.43 ms/1). Male and female silver eels reached an identical Ucrit despite their different sizes, which may be a strategy to increase the synchronization of arrival at the spawning grounds.
